Introduced at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada, Vivo set the standards and defines a new era in mobile interaction with its futuristic in-display fingerprint smartphone
The in-display fingerprint technology supported by Synaptics supports multiple interfaces which are activated only when needed. In its workings, a GUI will show up on the screen when needed while it looks like a regular display when not called up to function. An indicator asks you to place a finger on it to unlock your or while using got mobile payment purposes.
This technology is heralded as better and more convenient than other authentication options currently available to smartphones without sacrificing design or simplicity.
In a press release which went out today, Alex Song, Senior Vice President of Vivo said;
“With our efforts in extensive consumer research and long-term investment, Vivo is well positioned to pioneer the development of fingerprint scanning technology. We first presented a prototype of our fingerprint scanning solution at MWC Shanghai 2017 based on an ultrasonic sensor, and have remained committed to realizing our vision for future smartphones”
Today’s showcase of a ready-to-produce in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone featuring an optical fingerprint sensor is a big leap forward in bringing consumers this long-awaited, futuristic mobile experience. We are very excited to make it available to consumers soon”
The availability of Vivo’s first in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone will be announced in early 2018.
